Music Video: Modest Mouse “Coyotes”

modestmouse-coyotes

Modest Mouse are set to release their first new album since 2007, Strangers to Ourselves. They’ve just released a video for the song “Coyotes” and it’s based on the true story of coyote that rode the Portland light rail train in 2002. If anyone knows who directed this let me know and I’ll add the credit to the post (I wasn’t able to find any info).

*EDIT – This video was directed by Matt Clark who is art directing and designing Modest Mouse’s new album and singles, as he did for Good News For People Who Love Bad News in 2009. I posted about Matt’s work under the name Houston in 2011. “Coyotes” originally started as a short film called Passenger.

Watch the video below.

  • Welcome back Modest Mouse. And with such a great video. Based on a true story! Nothing more subtle yet powerful then the tale of a wild animal on an adventure through the big city.

    Seeing that it has been a little over 20 years since I first started liking and listen to Modest Mouse, makes me realize that time does fly by… I am very excited for this new album, and I hope they bring back some of that special something they had in albums like Lonesome Crowded West, or Interstate 8 (my favorite Modest Mouse album).

    Can we all agree that birds and worms don’t get along? ; )

180 Creative Camp is an 8-day media arts academy hosted by Canal180 in Abrantes, Portugal, from July 2nd to 9th. The event provides a unique environment for participants and invited artists to exchange experiences, learn and create together. I’ll be headed out there to do a talk at the camp and more importantly hang with the participants.
